and here’s why having a living wall makes for a healthy office environment..

 

 

Just as important is your office design which should provide:

  • access to natural light.  Here is an alternative to traditional solid walls:

Allsteel Beyond architectural walls

These ‘Beyond’ architectural walls from Allsteel are movable, reconfigurable and are available with a variety of panel styles including clear glass as shown here.  This makes natural light accessible to those in the enclosed office space while allowing light through to the rest of the office space

 

Incorporate all these elements in your office this year and you’ll have an office that’s well on it’s way to being healthier and more conducive to peak performance than ever before!
